WOW. Works for Chhattisgarh. Sent two messages.

1. for my sold UVA: It shows the new owner name and also that he is the second owner .

2. For my New Vista and shows precise information.

Thanks for the important update. This can be seriouly used for anyone who is not law abiding additional info can be handed over to the cops.

Thanks for sharing! A service that works like a charm for Mumbai registered vehicles, but not those registered in Nasik.

Not really. It listed me as the current owner of my pre-worshipped Civic.

Not working for me. I put in numbers of our '99 Esteem (MP number) and my sold-off '06 M800 (CG number) and both times I got this:

How is it that in some cases just the name of the owner is returned without any info about the model or the dates? Even for some old cars?

Worked well enough on both my Nasik registered bike(2009) and car(2007). But didn't work on my old+sold bike registered in Nasik 2003.

Edit: Now that I realize, I sold my 2003 bike in 2009 and got a new bike. My 2007 car shows up and my 2009 also shows up. My old bike (with new owner) doesn't. Could it be that the bike was never transferred in the new name?

Edit 2: Checked my friend's 2003 vehicle, no details on this one too. My hunch could be right!!

Edit 3: I have an SMS pack on my Vodafone phone. Getting all details at no charge

Tried this on my 2011 model bike registered with Indiranagar RTO, worked flawlessly.
Cost, well I'm charged for an STD SMS here in Karnataka.

Amazing.

Tried for my "preworshipped" Civic. Gave correct details (my name) in seconds.

Tried for my sold Ikon. Gave correct details of the second owner. Incidentally I had done the paperwork for him to change the name in RC card. Glad to know the system reflects that.

I sincerely feel that Amit has answered your question below. There is hardly any loss of privacy. You take a random number and ask the system to give owner's name. It will throw out a name. And thats about it. At best one can go to facebook and maybe, just maybe get lucky.

This kind of info has been available for a long time from multiple sites
eg: for Bangalore BTIS - Bangalore Transport Information System (except for new cars)

However I dont know how useful it is just getting the name. You are not even sure whether the owner has transferred the vehicle to someone else and this database is yet to be updated.

Did not work for both my previous cars, a Zen and a Honda City. In the case of the City, it did not throw me up as the owner either even though I bought it in 2004. But worked for both my 2005 Getz and 2010 Superb. Perhaps my previous cars have been registered out of state (though why anyone would buy Bombay cars and register them elsewhere boggles my mind)
